MLK was no commie. There is a reason the FBI paid shills like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to snitch on him and sabotage his movement. When they failed, the feds killed him.

Bullshit. He literally said that organized non-violent resistance is the only way to go. The "violent riots" broke out after he was murdered.

so far all i can see is you folks don't like MLK because you lost your white bathrooms and drinking fountains...? am i reading this right? I also need to ask; what violent riots perpetrated by MLK are you referring to? he was vehemently against violence; i have family that participated in protests all throughout the 70s and i've spent quite a lil bit of time in my life researching these sorts of things. From everything i've come across MLK seemed pretty legit, i don't know if i'd agree with 100% of everything he said, but i always thought the gov't had him wacked cuz he was protesting the Vietnam War among other things.

i just did a quick read on this and from what i can tell, saying MLK Jr was a communist is highly speculative at best and i'm only finding more affirmation that dude was legit scholar; he apparently spent his whole life defending accusations he was a communist and again i'm seeing here a lot of it brought on because he was protesting the Vietnam War, which should be renamed to George Bush's Opium War.
